Andrew Brady confirms Celebs Go Dating meeting after Caroline Flack split

They got engaged just three months after meeting

Caroline Flack's former fiancé Andrew Brady has admitted he was "wrong" to meet Celebs Go Dating bosses after their split.

The couple revealed their engagement in April, just three months after meeting, but announced this week they've parted ways.

As neither gave a reason for the break-up, it's led to a multiple of unconfirmed whispers about what went wrong and what's happening now.

One claim was that Andrew, 27, had met with Celebs Go Dating producers, apparently leaving Caroline upset as their split was still raw.

When someone has no money and nothing to lose they tend to do crazy irrational things.

Andrew has now spoken out in a candid social media post, admitting he DID meet with show bosses and saying it was the "wrong" decision.

He also claimed to have "no money" and said he felt "ashamed".

Andrew wrote: "I never comment on media speculation or stories but in this instance I feel it necessary to. Yes, I had a meeting [with] Celebs Go Dating after Caroline and I had separated.

"However, this was wrong. When someone has no money and nothing to lose they tend to do crazy irrational things. I am ashamed and trying to move on with my life.

"Please would you respect mine and Caroline's privacy and not try and speculate on who said or did what."

Caroline has not yet responded to Andrew's post.

The couple announced their split in separate statements on Tuesday.

Love Island host Caroline, 38, told The Mirror: "I’m sad to announce that Andrew and I have decided to part ways. Unfortunately it was not to be. I wish him all the best."

Caroline then made a reference to her job as Love Island host, saying: "At least there’s a Villa waiting for me. It’s back to the ol’ grafting."

Andrew, who found fame on The Apprentice and Celebrity Big Brother, confirmed the break-up on social media.

He said: "Sad to announce Caroline and I have decided to part ways. Unfortunately it was not meant to be and I wish her all the best in the future."

Caroline has not spoken out further on the split or given any reasons, although she did hit back at one article claiming she'd told pals she feared Andrew was 'using her for fame'.

She said on Twitter: "I’ve revealed nothing. We wish each other well...

"Please please just give us our space and let us have some privacy right now thanks."

Caroline had previously spoken about how Andrew's proposal was a surprise.

She told  Daily Mail's You magazine in May: "Andrew proposed totally out of the blue and it was very low key. I had no idea he was planning on asking me to marry him!" she said.

"But I knew things felt different in the lead-up; from the very first date with Andrew I felt as though I'd known him for years. I've never had that feeling before."
